For someone unfamiliar with 828 Clothing, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
This brand was created for moms by a mom. Our mindset is that when you look good you feel good. So many things change about you when you become a mom. The balance is not losing your self-identity but being the greatest mom you can be. We want to be the help to get just one thing off your plate. You can have fashionable clothes that fit into your family lifestyle. So for all the spit-up, food, and spill accidents, you won’t be afraid that you ruined your clothes. We also offer baby onesies with amusing mommy and baby lifestyle quotes.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
Recently, we decided to rebrand 828 Clothing to grow with me. When pregnant with our daughter Nahla I decided that I would exclusively breastfeed. The only downside were the clothes. I wanted to be able to keep my style without compromising and buying clothes just for convenience. My husband Matt suggested that I make my own. I was then linked with Alva Glass who has been a Godsend. As the line grew so did my mommy hood. I realized that I wanted the line to catch up to me as a woman, wife and mom. That is where I birthed the rebrand and it is now called 828. 828 was derived from Matt’s and my favorite bible verse Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” As a parent there are so many worries but we know no matter what happens, it all will work for the greater good. The new line is for every stage of motherhood. We won’t forever be pregnant or nursing but will forever be a mom.
What are the most popular and/or newest products from 828 Clothing?
The most popular have been our leggings and also the DeeDee Dress, which is functional for maternity and nursing. For 828baby, it’s the funsie onesie which says, ” if you wake me, you take me.” That was a hit this year. Our newest products on 828 will continue to feature the whimsical onesies, DeeDee Dress, and our new cardigans that are quickly becoming a favorite.
What sets 828 Clothing products apart from other clothing companies?
We are really intentional on creating things that are unique to mainstream and are created by need and trial and error by us. I won’t sell something that my children or I would not wear!
What can parents expect from 828 Clothing at the LA Baby Show?
You can expect new refreshing designs and onesies from our family. We can’t wait to help you feel like the pre-baby you …. with your special blessings you have now.
